The Calgary Wranglers of the AHL announced the signing of Mark Duarte to an amateur tryout contract.
Duarte, 20, recently completed his final season in the OHL, as the undrafted forward notched 48 points (20G, 28A) in 65 games for the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds. He also played two seasons with the Hamilton Bulldogs, but did not see action in the canceled 2020-21 season.
After a productive overage season, Duarte will get the opportunity to join a Wranglers team that currently sits at the top of the AHL standings. If he is able to show that his offensive improvement in the OHL can translate, Duarte could be on a path to carving out a role for himself in the professional ranks.
